A gastroenterologist, also called a GI doctor or stomach doctor, is a physician who has specialized training and experience in managing diseases of the gastrointestinal or digestive tract. This system is responsible for breaking down food into nutrients that the body uses for growth and repair. The affected anatomy includes:
- Large and small intestine
- Associated glands (i.e. Pancreas)
At Boulevard Medical Healthcare, our Bronx gastroenterologists perform complex diagnostic and therapeutic procedures to treat gastroenterology conditions such as abdominal pain, peptic ulcers, diarrhea, Crohn’s disease, hemorrhoids, and hepatitis. The treatments and procedures we provide include hemorrhoid banding, colonoscopies, and general gastrointestinal care.
To help identify and diagnose a problem, our Bronx GI doctors perform a variety of scopes, called endoscopies, on the upper and lower digestive tract. These studies allow us to view the digestive tract in real time. Our gastroenterologists may also perform these procedures to remove polyps as well as repair or remove defective portions.
